I'll kick off this popular thread with one of mine from last week in wine-producing valley of Valtellina, Italy. Almost feeling like spring. Let's see some of your favs!

Spent some time at a friend's who breeds Labrador Retrievers.  These monkeys are 6 weeks old.

A very windy day in Pennan,  Northeast Scotland. Famous for being the film location for Local Hero. The iconic phone box was a film prop.

Three photos taken years ago (2008) in The Philippines when I'd never even heard of stock photography with my old Nikon D50 which thanks to better software and and post-processing skills, I have now been able to upload.

It's very early early in the month to be talking about favourites, but I took my camera to work on Monday and spent a very pleasant lunch hour walking around Llandaff Cathedral which is only five minutes' walk away. I've pointed my camera at it so often it's easy to retake the same shots so this time I deliberately set out to find new angles. Got about fifteen uploads out of it. Spring is not far away and there are a couple of spectacular magnolia trees in the grounds. Plenty more opportunity there.

Shot this a few days ago, looking out my hotel room window in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Hope it can sell one day.

Ohhhh. Perfect Valentine. I'd put Valentine's Day in the keywords. Maybe late for this year but it sure works.

These things again...thanks to Bryan I know now that they are wind turbine platforms.  They keep popping up in Leith, apparently on their way from Newcastle.  A couple of weekends ago we saw two of them being towed by a tug far out in the North Sea from the Aberdeenshire coast.  Presumably there is a huge wind farm being built somewhere up North. i liked the juxtaposition of the towers behind the roof of a 17th century merchants house in Leith.

Agreed.  One of the best films of all time with a superb soundtrack written by Mark Knopfler.
